I have been trying to connect my branch of the Yeos back to England on and off for 20 years.My oldest "for sure" ancestor is Lewis Sanford Yeo, b. 24 Oct 1840 Cleavland, Cuyhoga CO, Ohio, and he enisted in the Civil war at age 23 in Hannibal, NY (so he traveled and perhaps grew up in upstate NY).He died in Kansas in 1899.
I suspect Lewis Yeo's father may have come from the Ontario Yeos (sometime before 1840) given the proximity of Lewis' birth city of Cleavland, OH and the numer of postings I see about the Yeos in Ontario.I have some sketchy evidence that Lewis's father's name might have been James or Henry, but nothing for sure.
Please see my posting about Lewis Sanford Yeo on July 3, 2001 for more info on him.
Any help in Locating the father of Lewis Yeo would be greatly appreciated.
